We are delighted to announce we have been put forward for not one but TWO Outsider Magazine Award Nominations!
The categories we have been nominated in are ‘Best Outdoor Escape Provider Award’ and ‘Leave No Trace – Most Sustainable Escape Award’. If you click on the pictures or names you can vote for us in each category if you’d like. (PLEASE & THANK YOU!!)
Why do we think we deserve your vote for the Outsider Magazine Award Nominations!? Well we firmly believe we are in fact the Best Outdoor Escape Provider around! Working hard ensuring that each and every person coming on holiday with us has the best time possible! Every one who books a tour with us is designated their own personal holiday coordinator. This helps with ensuring everything in the run up to the trip runs very smoothly! Let us worry about the details and you sit back and relax.. or train for your hike!! We hand pick all of our accommodation providers and have sampled many many full Irish Breakfasts. Also we have sampled quite a few pints of Guinness to find out where the best ones are. Listened to hundreds of traditional Irish music sessions in great bars. All just for your benefit of course!
The ‘Leave No Trace – Most Sustainable Escape Award’ is also an area we are incredibly passionate about! Ireland is our country, our home & we just love it. We want to ensure that we leave the Ireland we know and adore for our children & for future generations.
Believing that Ireland should be seen slowly, by foot or by bike, so that you can feel its soul and hear its stories. Our philosophy since starting Ireland Walk Hike Bike we encourage our clients to take photos and leave only footprints. As a result ensuring minimal impact on our country & maximum enjoyment.
Our commitment, values and what is important to us as a company and as a group of individuals is the environment. It is something we have naturally done since we began in business, but until now, we have never told you, our clients, about it. We hope that our clients, will appreciate the quality of service we provide, as we strive to maintain our country as you find it in all its natural glory. Asking all of or clients to calculate their Carbon footprint getting to Ireland and to offset it.
As a company who operate in nature we are always looking for ways we can help preserve the natural areas we are so lucky to be able to take our guests to. Being members of the Irish Peatland Conservation Council (IPCC) we have supported the IPCC for many years. Now offering our guests the opportunity to donate to the IPCC if they wish. We are also actively involved in the Tralee to Fenit Greenway project where we hope we can have an off road cycle way similar to the Greenway in Mayo in the near future.
We are a fully Eco Certified Tour operator and have many new procedures and exciting events in pipeline for 2017 to become even more sustainable and environmentally aware!
